It has been hailed as the future of luggage transportation, allowing travellers to roam airports and train stations unhindered by an awkwardly large dragging suitcase. We present for your travelling ease this week, Hop - the self-driving suitcase.
Though it has not yet been released as a full model, the prototype is designed as such that it will connect to the Bluetooth signal from the owner's phone and follows behind at a short distance. Genius we hear you cry, especially when you find out that if the signal is lost (along with the suitcase), it will stop and lock itself before sending a vibrating signal to the owners phone to inform them that it is no longer trundling happily along at their heels. The bags can even be made to follow one another if you need more than one.
Despite the fact that it is still a prototype, this innovative design has already been entered for the James Dyson Award, a prestigious student design award, and designer Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez has high hopes for its success and even its usefulness for disabled travellers. He has hopes that one day, it will serve as a replacement for luggage conveyor belts, trolleys and even bellhops - some ambitious aims but with a little longer to work on it, perhaps this self-driving suitcase will have us all chasing it before long.
